I read this book last year, and am now re-reading it. It is so completely refreshing and thought-provoking; I highly recommend it.

I tried to add an image link to it with Amazon, but there is no image available. It is called Plain and Simple: A Woman's Journey to the Amish by Sue Bender, (here is a link w/o the image: Plain and Simple and an image taken from the Harper Collins Publishers website).

The true story provides an absolutely wonderful experience. The author's thoughts help me to have a different perspective on life, and most importantly, to slow down and enjoy the simple and beautiful things that surround me every day. I borrowed it from my mom and don't know if I'll ever be able to return it - I could read it again and again. (I am mostly type A/red-with-a-little-blue personality, so this book really speaks to me.)

I'll have to try this book out. I am always looking for book recommendations. You should go to goodreads.com. That is where I put the books that I have read and use the images from that website to put on my blog. It's fun to see what everyone is reading and get recommendations from them.
